Five: RT Steps Once More into the Perilous Waters of Poesie!

*

The muse, a bit miffed, called with an overdue notice yesterday; she hasn’t missed out on the cell-phone revolution. Here’s my latest contribution, inspired by a certain recent browsing of The Stones of Venice and a prompt from We Write Poems: to write a poem consisting of three perfect sentences.

Enjoy!  RT

5 thrones

·

three thrones: tyre, venice, london & what

of the fourth? No word yet, unless we remember

the stones laboriously assembled–the stuff of

heaven, the fabric of time and space, wall of Cathay,

its new inland sea. Ruskin’s rustling whiskers, like a

certain Cheshire cat, are all that may remain,

or not: the dam will hold, the domes of heaven, hang

from Constantinople’s threads–straight lines, sinuous

accommodations.
